Literary Birthday - 18 October - Amish Tripathi

Happy Birthday, Amish Tripathi, born 18 October 1974

Six Quotes

  1. A bad book and good marketing won't work, the same way a good book and bad marketing will also not work. 
  2. Creation and destruction are the two ends of the same moment. And everything between the creation and the next destruction is the journey of life.
  3. When I write, I tend to be quite cut off from the world. At that point of time, I'm not thinking about editors, publishers or readers. I write the story the way it comes to me.
  4. Myths are part of our DNA. We're a civilisation with a continuous culture. The effort to modernise it keeps it alive. Readers connect with it.
  5. I think that one should be natural, not just when it comes to writing but in every area of life. If you try to be something that you are not just to impress others, then it's a rather sad life.
  6. Standing by and doing nothing while a sin is committed is as bad as committing the sin itself.
